Synopsis
Description

SYNOPSIS

slack-diff [OPTION]... FILE1 FILE2

DESCRIPTION

A wrapper for diff that displays file modes and other metadata changes.
-u -U NUM --unified[=NUM]
  Tell diff(1) to use unified output format.
--diff PROG
  Use this program for diffing, instead of diff.
--fakediff
  Make a fake diff for file modes and other things that are not file contents. Default is on, can be disabled with --nofakediff.
-r --recursive
  Recursively compare any subdirectories found.
-N --new-file
  Treat missing files as empty. Default is on, can be disabled with --nonew-file.
--unidirectional-new-file
  Treat only missing files in the first directory as empty.
--from-file
  Treat arguments as a list of files from which to read filenames to compare, two lines at a time.
-0 --null Use NULLs instead of newlines as the separator in --from-file mode.
--devnullhack
  You have a version of diff that can’t deal with -N when not in recursive mode, so we need to feed it /dev/null instead of the missing file. Default is on, can be disabled with --nodevnullhack.

--version
  Output version info.
--help Output this help.
FILES are ‘FILE1 FILE2’ or ‘DIR1 DIR2’ or ‘DIR FILE...’ or ‘FILE... DIR’. If --from-file or --to-file is given, there are no restrictions on FILES. If a FILE is ‘-’, read standard input.
